A Dog’s life


At the time of creation, God was allocating life times to every living creature in terms of years.

First He called on the Man and gave him 20 years. Man as usually did not agree with God and explained that it is not fair for him because till 20 he will become young and then he will miss all the fun. God did not argue but promised to give the Man more years if other living creatures left any. So Man agreed to it.

After Man, God called to the Dog and gave it 30 years. At this, Dog got upset and explained that it is not fair for it because all it’s life it will run after untouchable things, get a scolding from everyone and will have to obey Man all it’s life, so there is no fun in this kind of life. So it begged God to minimize it’s life with 50%. God fulfilled it’s request and gave 15 years to Man as promised.

After Dog, God called to the Donkey and gave it 40 years. At this, Donkey got upset and explained that it is not fair for it because all it’s life it will carry burden on it’s back, get hits by Man and will have to obey Man all it’s life, so there is no fun in this kind of life. So it begged God to minimize it’s life with 50%. God fulfilled it’s request and gave 20 years to Man as promised.

After Donkey, God called to the Owl and gave it 50 years. At this, Owl got upset and explained that it is not fair for it because all it’s life it will not sleep at night and Man will never let it sleep in day time, so there is no fun in this kind of life. So it begged God to minimize it’s life with 50%. God fulfilled it’s request and gave 25 years to Man as promised.

After all this, Man’s average life time reached 80 and Man got happy. But this does not ends here!!!

Now Man lives his first 20 years like a man and enjoys every moment of his life. He is not afraid of anything and has free will to do anything. But as soon as he completes his 20 years. He enters a stage of life where he gets worried about education, jobs, girls, marriage etc. He runs after each of them even if they are unachievable. So he spends 15 years of his life like a Dog. When he reaches third phase of his life, and he has acquired some reasonable job, he has children and old parents, then he is pressed with great responsibilities. So he spends 20 years of his life like a Donkey. When he reaches his final phase of his life, he becomes old and tired and sick, and can not sleep at nights due to pains and grand children does not let him sleep at daytime. So he spends his last 25 years like an Owl.

The moral of this philosophical story is that we can totally understand why there are sudden changes in our lives and how are we effected. For me, I am currently spending A Dog’s Life……. 😦 😦 😦

Happy Life Spending 😉
